21st review on BA
Bottle poured to flute
Best by 12/8/10
App- Golden yellow with lots of carbonation poured with a nice head that was quick to leave. Lots and lots of bubbles on this one.
Smell- Light hops and that traditional skunky german smell. I hope it tastes better.
Taste- A heavier pilsner than I thought, maybe not such a pilsner but more a bitter? It was quite bitter at the finish. Has a lot of hops in it but not quite the noble I was expecting. Tasted more like a small IPA IMHO.
Mouth- It was crisp. It left a small aftertaste. I did like it don't get me wrong I wonder if a fresher bottle maybe at the brewery would have been that much better or if I am not such a pils fan?
Drink- I could see at the beach or river downing a 6 pack, that would be quite nice. Heres to summer coming back.

On draft at Buen Apetito Mexican Restaurant in Waterville, Maine. Served in a 16-ounce shaker glass.
Appearance - bubbly, clear, and yellow;
Smell - Slight floral hop aroma that grew as the lager warmed;
Taste - Dry and refreshing with a floral hop taste in the finish;
Mouthfeel - thoroughly carbonated and not watery;
Overall - One of the best lagers that I've had. This is what green bottled Euro beers should probably taste like if they weren't always skunked.

I recently tried it when in the UK and I am seriously surprised that something like this is sold. It's pretty much like a homebrewer's first pils. It is nowhere near the subtley balanced flavours other examples such as Pilsner Urquell display.
The taste is quite harsh, steely. The body is way too thin and lacks just a little bit of the sweetness that is necessary for even the dry beers like "Flensburger" or "Jever".
I'd go back to the drawing board with this one...
